well, I would like to try learning Spanish (many people speak it) one day and maybe keeping my French from school a bit up to date (I don't practise it enough, I unlearn how to speak too fast)... maybe even Turkish a little (2nd language in Germany)


But besides this, I wouldn't put ANY effort in learning other languages, because I wouldn't get enough use out of it (only if I lived in that country, then I would learn) and it would be nothing but wasted time for me, therefore I won't come up saying something "exotic" now how much I would love to learn Chinese, Japanese, ... or things like that ;)

I wouldn't like to study any language, due to my laziness. But I would love to be naturally gifted in Russian. Possibly also French, not because of its exciting phrases :| but because its sexy, and useful lol!
Although German is more useful for business, France has everything inside it (skiing terrain, hot terrain, everything) so they barely need to transact outside of France.

Portugese is lovely. It's absolutely the best language for singing. I used to think Italian was, but Portugese has it beat by a mile. :)

I would love to learn Arabic, but the writing intimidates me... ditto for Chinese but with Chinese the intonations also intimidate me.

Spanish I think is the language I should concentrate on learning because it has the most usefulness in my country.

Well I had to learn German in school for a while, plus I spent some time in Austria and Switzerland as well. Actually to the ear I find it a lot easier to listen to the German spoken in Austria or Schwyzerttsch than standard German.

The word order isn't so bad, but the other grammar rules really piss me off then again I was making progress with one good teacher, then the other one afterwards well she was like the way I feel about some of the Roddick fans here.

Coming from Bavaria which has a very similiar dialect to the Austrian one, it's not difficult to understand for me that you like listening to these dialects, but for most foreign-speakers, the more difficult question would be if it's "only" nice for the ear to listen to it or if you can also understand it well enough. I know from lots of foreigners (most of them are Turkish), that they have their difficulties when they were taught some standard German in courses and then during their daily real life lesson they find it hard to understand something because the way how people in certain regions are talking and the way how things are differently said or pronounced are causing problems for them.

That is actually more of a problem in Switzerland I think. They have to learn to read and write standard German, but rarely use it or do everything they can not to use it. I have a Swiss friend who will never speak standard German, at the same time immigrants need to learn the standard as it gives them better opportunities to read the newspapers, follow the TV too bad they still persist in dubbing instead of using subtitles for non-German language programs and the other media forms which are very rarely written in dialect. It really doesn't matter whether it's too much of a regionalism as long as they are able to be understood.

I hear you man- I am taking a class in German to polish mine up and the Der Die Das is killing me :banghead:

One language I would dearly love to learn is Spanish- I love the way it sounds, rolling off your tongue. I guess I have a good base as I studied French for 5 years in high school.

Another language I regret not knowing is Russian and yes I had the opportunity when I was young. My grandmum was originally from Russia and my mum is a fluent Russian speaker but sadly she never spoke to me regularly in Russian :sad: I just know a few select words but nothing more sadly.

I am still having nightmares over German grammar. As I said before I find it much easier to follow Swiss German than I do the standard, but the whole grammar thing is a pain, though there are some certain rules that make sense.

Yes, with French as a base you should be able to do well with Spanish. Then again going to a Spanish speaking country will help as well, you might know Emilita from the Robredo/Lopez forum learnt French for years, and that helped her with Spanish.

The Slavic languages are cool as well, yes the best way is to get them young.
Just to be a prick as much as I like Spanish, I'd probably rather learn Catalan, then that's not surprising.

Japan has bigger industries in technology.

Good luck then!!! I used to work for a company that did lots of business with Japan. The company bought a printer from Japan and that model could only find in Japan so the user manual, etc were in Japanese. There's a girl who's fluent in Japanese but she's no techno person. She had absolutely no idea on part of the manual. The problem was, for many computer terms, Japanese just used their phonics to pronounce the English words, so I had to work with that girl, she tried to sound out the words and I tried to figure out what're the English words.

It would also rock to understand people like Confucius in their language. :)

Are you talking about Chinese here? btw, most of the Japanese words/characters are Chinese. :p

It's the most important language, and I'm unable to have a discussion, to understand a song or people at tv, so frustrating :mad:

I learnt german, english and spanish ...german grammar was a nightmare for me, and spanish is quite easy.

I'd like to learn italian, only for the beauty of the language.

That's not really surprising me...in fact, Marine is one of the numerous victims of our stupid French foreign language teaching method...I mean that the stress is put onto the written expression but when it comes to spoken language, that's total shit...sometimes, it is ignored by some teachers...and I know what I'm talking about...I've almost ended as a teacher myself! :rolleyes:
But I understand, because I am the same way with my foreign languages. Much harder at real life pace! ;)
All you need is more training...it comes with the use...of course it's hard at the beginning, but it's the only way to improve. For me, the total immersion in a family has been the best way to learn... ;)

Spanish to speak to the latinas, I had it from 6th to 12th grade and for my University foreign language requirements and I can't even read a menu or know more than a few basic phrases.

It's just sad how different languages are taught here, they teach you how to conjugate verbs and punctuation and stuff instead of teaching you the language itself before all that hard stuff that you can't learn a language from doing, it only confuses you.

I think my English is so good that I wouldn't anymore need to study it, I learn it from listening and writing, as well as from speaking and writing myself.

But German is a language whose skills I'd like to improve. Assuming I'll work in Finland, or at least in Europe, German will be one of the most important languages in my job.

But, of languages I can't speak at all, I'd like to learn Italian or Spanish the most. I like Italy more than any Spanish speaking country, yet on the other hand Spanish is more important language as there are Spanish-speaking areas worldwide, and there are some interesting countries in Latin America.

And after Italian and Spanish, I'd like to learn Dutch, French, and Portuguese. I think my English and German skills would make learning Dutch easier, and Central Europe is an interesting area. French is one of the most important languages with French-speaking areas worldwide, yet on the other hand there are countries in Europe that interest me more than France. And, mainly because of Brazil, I'd like to learn Portuguese, yet on the other hand, I prefer Argentina and Mexico when it comes to Latin American countries.

Chinese. I am moderately proficient in Japanese and kanji writing system always fascinated me.

Sadly I don't have time to study this language and furthermore I am completely useless with intonations.

I already know German but I'd want so much to improve my German skills. I love living here in Germany, but there's one thing that frustrates me. It's not like in Finland, or in an English-speaking country, that I get what the others are speaking even when I don't particularly concentrate on listening. Sometimes it's even hard to understand even when I concentrate. I'd really like to live here also in the future but it would be nicer to understand better what the people are talking. Ofc. by living in the country, I can learn the language, on the other hand, I can live where I already know the language.

Otherwise I'm really not going to learn another language. I might like to learn French or Spanish but I'd want to speak them fluently and I don't have time for learning them. I think it's better to speak two foreign languages fluently than one fluently and know the basics of four other.

If I had to learn yet another language, I think it'd be Italian or Dutch. I once heard some Italian tourists speaking, and I was thinking I could understand it if only I knew the words, the accent doesn't hear as difficult as in French or Spanish. And learning Dutch might not be so difficult as I already know English and German. Of languages I don't know, Dutch texts are some of the most understandable for me.
